Topic: Ability to re-order the extended partition
This is a mega-important feature that I am surprised is not present, unless I missed how to do it....
I would like it to be able to change the linkage of the extended partitions so the logical order is changed.
This is a totally killer if you do what I just did....
Situation: complex load of partitions and a boot loader installed from somewhere.
What I did: I deleted a partition from the extended area. A second later I realized my terrible mistake! I just renumbered all the devices as Linux would see them. Now a load of stuff no longer works!
So I quickly put the partition back.
AAAARRRGGGGGH.... it linked it onto the end of the chain - so this hasn't helped!!!
Several hours later I managed to reconfigure everything back to working again (I hope).
It would be good if there was an option to say where a new partition should go in the chain, and even better to have a way to edit this when it turns out wrong.
